Les Pierres en Bulles Brut Rosé is a blend of 60% Gamay, 30% Grolleau and 10% Cot (Malbec.) The vines average 40 years of age. The three varieties are harvested when fully ripe, transported in small plastic crates and then vinified together. The juice is selected to give the most fine and elegant bubbles possible and to express the vinous essence of the red Loire varieties. 

Originally from the Loire-Atlantic part of France, Coralie and Anthony Rassin worked in various wines regions in France and abroad before settling in the appellation Montlouis – Coralie made wines at Jaboulet and Francois Villard and Anthony worked for Pierre Gonon. They took up the challenge to run their own vineyard and winery and put their experiences to work. In late 2015, they acquired the Montlouis estate, Domaine Flamand Deletang in St Martin Le Beau in its entirety. They renamed it Domaine Les Pierres Ecrites to make a new start while also giving a nod to the prior owner, whose grandfather was a famed archeologist of prehistoric drawings on stones in North Africa.  Their main cuvée was called “Les Pierres Ecrites.”

Winemaking
It undergoes its primary fermentation in stainless steel tanks with only the native yeasts and natural sugar in the grapes as harvested. The tank is cooled to stop the fermentation with about 18 grams per liter of residual sugar left, so to enable the secondary fermentation in bottle. There is no malolactic fermentation. The Les Pierres en Bulles Brut Rosé is bottled in January and aged sur latte for 17 months before dégorgement. It is finished with a light dosage of must. 12.5% alcohol. RS: 10 gr/l.
